Prettiest of Weddings Wednesday at Fairview Farm, Near Hume
Mr. and Mrs. George Beardsley of Fairview farm made one of the prettiest of home weddings Wednesday Nov. third, when occurred the marriage of their second daughter, Emma Theresa, to Roy T. Smith of Dutch Hill. The ceremony took place at high noon, Rev. Bruce of Houghton performing the marriage service.
The bride wore a daintily trimmed white princess dress and was accompanied by her sister. Miss Ethel Beardsley, who was dressed in pale blue silk mull.
Ray Howden of Fillmore was "bestman" on the occasion.
The bridal party entered the parlor as the wedding march was played by Miss Rheta Beardsley and took their places within a beautiful bower formed by an arch and banks of evergreens and ferns.
The same color scheme of green and white was carried out in the decoration for the dining room where covers were laid out for twenety-four. The brides table was laid for ten and Mr. and Mrs. Frederick Schuknecht, grandparents of the bride, were to have graced the occasion with their presence, but being unable to do so sent the wedding cake which decorated the table for their own golden wedding in 1903. This is a German custom for good luck and Mrs. Smith's was the third bride's table in the Schuknecht family that has had this cake for a center piece.
Mr. and Mrs. Smith received many handsome presents of silver, cut glass and furniture, and have the best wishes for future happiness from a host of friends who appreciate the sterling worth and character of the young couple.
The bridal party was driven to the station ina carriage most artistically decorated for the occasion and left on the afternoon train for a brief wedding journey, after which they well begin housekeeping in their new home on Dutch Hill.
